How small is a hummingbird egg? What is the true size of the Large Hadron Collider? Listing their size in inches and feet respectively is one option, but it wouldn’t be as informative or impressive as showing you their scale next to the size of a human, wouldn’t it? We, for one, would really appreciate such a comparison. That’s exactly why we compiled a whole list of images that reveal the surprising scale of things pictured side by side with humans. We must say, these images truly surprised us!
